Lab Technician:

Kelly Muth

I have been working with Dr. Rosemary Sherriff for three years. I was a teaching assistant for Physical Geography while working on my B.A. in Geography, in addition to being a lab technician and research assistant in the Dendroecology Lab. My work includes dendrochronology, climate analysis and database management.


Current Undergraduate Assistant:

Rebecca Batzel

Using tree rings as a proxy, I study the effects of temperature on tree growth response and am currently working to determine the fire history and stand dynamics within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Alaska.


Current Graduate Students – Forest, Watershed and Wildland Graduate Program: 

Radek Glebocki

My research considers the effects of restoration thinning in young Douglas-fir - redwood forest stands on forest fuels. Specifically, I am looking at changes in fuel loads and fuel moisture content over the chronosequence of restoration thinnings in Headwaters Forest Reserve.


Zawisza Grabinski-Parker

My research involves visually modeling forest restoration scenarios in the Klamath National Forest.

My research concerns how oak woodlands in northern California have changed over time and if stand structure influences the relationship between annual growth in oak trees and climate.
